School Lunches

From Monday 15th April 2024, the school meal catering will be managed by a local catering group called Hutchison Catering.  They currently provide catering to schools across North Tyneside and we were impressed with the service and menu choice when we observed in other local schools.  If you would like to access their website, please click on the link

As part of this change of providers, there is a new three week menu and also a new school meal payment system called Appetite:  After talking to other local schools, they have said this system is simple and easy for parents/carers to use and it also allows you to pay via card and direct debit.  If you choose to pay via direct debit, Appetite collects these payments on a monthly basis.

A key option of this new service will be a pre-order system for your child's school meal on the Appetite System.  Parents can pre-order for a day, a week, a month or a term.  The system will accept orders until 9.30am each day.  This has many benefits:

  • Children and parents can select the food they want to eat each day from the menu so children select what they like.

  • Parents know what their child has had to eat.

  • It reduces food wastage.
